Flaunt those blushed-out cheeks and glossy lips with these tips
As we know that the summer season is here, it's time to put your best foot in fashion forward. Like every year, this year too there are some style statements and trends that are causing the hype. So we bring to you some of the coolest blush makeup hacks that you should try.
While matte lips are awesome for all day long look, a tinge on the lips with a clear gloss on top is something that adds to the perfect glam factor to any of your makeup looks. The best way to get those perfect glossy lips is to fill and outline your lips with a good lip pencil or lip color and coat it up with a clear gloss.
Blush is usually a flush of rosy color around the cheeks that brightens up the complexion. Nicely done flushed cheeks with just a bit of bronzer offer a sun-kissed look. This is undoubtedly a trend to look out for in any season.
How to get glossy lips
Let’s get straight into it! Follow these tips to give your pout a glossy look.
Moisturize your lips
The drier your lips are, the more of a challenge it becomes to make them look glossy. Before applying a lip color, apply a hydrating lip balm generously.
Apply a glossy lipstick
Nowadays the trend is to love lipsticks with matte or satin finishes. But, you must go a bit different! Choose a glossy lipstick with a super-shiny finish and glide it on. As for which color to go for, it’s entirely up to you!
Apply a clear lip gloss on top
To amp up the uber-glossy lips you’re wishing for, add a layer of high-shine lip gloss over your lipstick.
Add shimmer at the center
Try adding a little shimmer into the mix. Dab a little amount of highlighter onto the center of your lips. This small trick will help you make your lips appear bigger.

To complete your look, use the same highlighter to add a touch of shimmer to your cupid’s bow.
How to get flushed blush?
You might know how to apply blush to your cheeks. But, do you know that you can wear it on the rest of your face, too? Yes, you can dab some on your cheeks, eyes, and lips. This will help you out with your blush makeup.
Apply cream blush onto your cheeks, gliding the blush from the cheekbones up to the hairline using a loose synthetic brush.
Use what's left over on your finger to press it gently on your eyelid. Now, blend it upwards towards the brow. Avoid applying any color next to your lash line. This will make you look sick. Pink or red blush on the eyes either has to be done away from the lashes or have black eyeliner distinguishing it from them.
Take some blush from your blush palette on your finger and dab it to the center of your lips, blending out. Complete it with a swipe of your favorite lip balm and you're good to go!
